Twenty years apart, different rings, same happy smile. August 30th saw the morning sun rise in a clear blue sky beckoning Teri to come out for a quick morning swim at high tide. A bit of weight loss and the cool water caused Teri’s wedding band to slip from her finger in water over 6 feet deep. A search for help ensued leading to a several phone calls for help in locating the wedding band. One lead to Luke a member of TheRingFinders. However, due to work requirements, Luke could not make leave work early enough to be able to search the bay area at the far end of the Cape in time to do a proper search at low tide. Five hours after the ring’s loss the low tide was on its way and I was heading for the end of the Cape. The ring’s resting place was now high and dry, well not quite dry. At least waders were not needed for the search in the warmth of the summer sun.

Searching the beach’s slope only yielded a couple one coin and a few odd bits of scrap metal. As an answer to a request for me to search higher on the slope I did but with no signal from the missing ring. Time to go to the damper section of the bay’s tidal area. On the second pass the second signal was the ring. The ring was once again heading back to its proper pace on Teri’s finger. To say the least Teri was sporting a big smile and neighbors having said a prayer to St. Anthony joined in on the joyous sounds.

This return was a bit special as my wife was there to watch me “do my thing”. After pictures were taken and a few stories passed between Teri, her husband, her family members and myself I left with a feeling of satisfaction of a requests fulfilled. On the way home my wife and I stopped for a traditional Cape Cod “Lobstha Roll” over-filled with only claw meat. Now everyone could go home with a smile on their face. Now, this is how every lost ring story should end…with big smiles on everyone’s face.

Wedding Ring Returned To Family Vacationing In Corona Del Mar

Saturday October 22, 2016

I received a phone call from someone named Dan who was visiting on vacation from Utah with his family. They were in south Corona Del Mar, and lost his titanium ring in the sand. After a long conversation, I found out the ring was lost far up on the sand, away from the water. It was higher up than the next oncoming high tide, so I knew it was safe and would still be there in the morning. The location was secluded. I spoke to him and asked him to mark the area with some smaller logs that were nearby. I went down to meet him Sunday morning at about 9:00 am and took about a five minute walk from the main beach. He showed me the area where he thought he lost it, and lo and behold, I heard a long RING, and the ring was in the first target that I dug. He was  amazed at the speediness of the recovery of the ring and was very grateful. He called his wife and kids right away to inform them of the good news, thanked me, and was on his way. I had a very gratifying ride home and the happiness of finding a ring made the ride home a lot shorter.
